Pompeii: Historic Ruins (Part 1)

Although the vacation with my sister was focused on Venice, Florence, and Rome, I really wanted to make a quick visit to Pompeii and Naples.  Naples of course for the only REAL Italian pizza and Pompeii for the historic significance of the city.  I will warn you that mid-July is probably not the best time to visit, but it was still an amazing adventure with Mt Vesuvius ominously in the background.
